This is something of an atypical lineup: no Mister Rourke (or another DJ), no guitar or viola, no horns. As a result the d'Elf sound is stripped down to bare bones, and the playing is often quiet, slowed down, almost contemplative. A uniquely minimalist version of the ever-shifting ensemble, probably most appreciated by hardcore d'Elf devotees. Not a favorite for me, but the audio is quite good.
